Mannes has developed minors for students seeking to further their studies in music in a cutting-edge 21st-century context. The minors at Mannes are for students who wish to focus on elements of performance or creation of music. They are designed to complement majors in music and other performing arts and are suitable for creative students who want to add music study to their New School experience.
Mannes minors are open to all undergraduate students at Mannes and Jazz and to students in other divisions of The New School. After taking an introductory course, students must apply and audition before declaring a minor (the application will be available online in fall 2014). Both minors require successful completion of 18 credits in several subject areas.
